What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Gene
  • Cancer
  • Internal medicine

Irving L. Weissman mainly focuses on Stem cell, Immunology, Haematopoiesis, Cell biology and Progenitor cell. His Stem cell research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Molecular biology, Cellular differentiation, Adult stem cell and Bone marrow. His Molecular biology study combines topics in areas such as T cell, Gene, Cell adhesion molecule and B cell.

His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Cancer and Cancer research. As a part of the same scientific study, Irving L. Weissman usually deals with the Haematopoiesis, concentrating on Myeloid and frequently concerns with Dendritic cell homeostasis and Lymphopoiesis. His research in Cell biology intersects with topics in Telomere, Embryonic stem cell and Genetics.

His most cited work include:

  • Stem cells, cancer, and cancer stem cells (7759 citations)
  • Calcineurin is a common target of cyclophilin-cyclosporin A and FKBP-FK506 complexes (3517 citations)
  • Purification and Characterization of Mouse Hematopoietic Stem Cells (2510 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

Stem cell, Immunology, Cell biology, Haematopoiesis and Progenitor cell are his primary areas of study. His Stem cell research incorporates themes from Cancer research, Cellular differentiation, Adult stem cell, Bone marrow and Transplantation. Irving L. Weissman combines topics linked to Cytotoxic T cell with his work on Immunology.

Irving L. Weissman interconnects Endothelial stem cell, Embryonic stem cell, Induced pluripotent stem cell and Cell in the investigation of issues within Cell biology. The various areas that Irving L. Weissman examines in his Haematopoiesis study include Myeloid, Molecular biology, Hematopoietic stem cell transplantation and Myeloid leukemia. His Molecular biology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of T cell, Gene and B cell.
